Carter Allen Sharp- Cole, 1, of Oakville, Wash., gained his angel wings on Saturday, October 20, 2018. Carter was born at St. Peter Hospital in Olympia on March 17, 2017, to Sidney Cole and Kayley Sharp. He loved spending time with his mom and dad, and enjoyed watching Seahawks games with his family. Some of his favorite activities were rolling around on his side, getting kisses from his huskies, and cuddling with his cats. He is being cared for in heaven by his great grandparents, Donald and Helen (Osbekoff) Gates. Carter brought so much joy and happiness to his family. He was surrounded by love and will be forever missed by his parents, Sidney and Kayley; grandparents, Jon and Kellie (Moe) Sharp and Sabrina Cole and Lee Starr; great-grandparents, Erik Moe, Marcy (Sanders) Ford, Ronald Sharp and Lee and Frances (Cooper) Starr; great-great-great-aunt, Karen (Hollenbach) Whipple; and his aunts and uncles, Chelsie, Ashleigh, Andrew, Shaylyn, Titan, and Lilah. Services will be held at 10 AM on Friday, November 2, at the Shaker Church on the Chehalis Reservation in Oakville. A luncheon will follow the service at the Chehalis Tribal Community Center.

One of my favorite memories was when we were still in the NICU with Carter. My dad was staring at the breathing machine for I don't know how long. He was so excited when he told me about how he figured out the bumps on the monitor. He told me that the blue ones those ones are the machine, but the brown ones that come up after every three blue ones, those ones were Carter's. Knowing about the bumps on the monitor gave me something to focus on, and hope for Carter to keep surviving. I would sing to Carter: "Just keep breathing breathing breathing, what do we do we keep on breathing, breathing breathing, we breathe breathe breathe." At first the bumps were small, but as Carter was on the right diet and able to produce more energy, the machine didn't need to do as much, and we got to see all the bumps be Carter breathing. Soon he didn't need the machine anymore. I love Carter so much!!!!!!!! I am so proud of you Carter!!!!!!!

Last year on Halloween Carter went up to Seattle Childrens, and was seen by a optometrist. That was a very early morning for us but he looked adorable in his pumpkin onesie. We did not go out and get candy since Carter can’t have sweets but we did visit both of his great grandmas houses, and visited. He dresses up as a little blue narwhal (which I say is his spirit animal) 😊 This year he was going to be a little raccoon. 💕

One of Carters favorite things to do was lay in bed with his daddy. When daddy was playing games he’d be right next to him spending time with him. When I’d have to step outside the room for a few minutes I’d put Carter next to his dad on the bed, and I’d sometimes find him rolling on his side to be closer to his dad. I’m going to miss seeing them sleep together so much.

Carter was in the hospital when I first meet him. So amazing to finally get to see Carter since I live so far away. He was so tired but he took all his energy to take a moment to pay attention to me. Carters sweet smile grabbed my heart. Carter is forever in my heart.

Carter was always the life of the party at every family get together. Stealing hearts every where he went. His short brief presence here taught us all things we aren't even aware of yet. It's sad that we won't be able to see him physically but he will live on in the loving memories he left with everyone. His spirit is flying free with all the other Angels now. And I'm so greatful to have met him and will never forget his sweet smile.
Rest in peace little man...
Love and respect from the Charley family.

Carter, to me, will always reside in my thoughts an exploding star. Though the experience was all too brief, the light he shone will carry on for years beyond counting. It was a privilege to have known him. To see his mother and grandmothers eyes light up as they looked at him. To laugh and encourage him as he cheered for the Seahawks with us on Sunday's. Our little man gave my wife Laura and I the honor of being the ring bearer at our wedding. I think that I can speak for both of us when I say that rarely have I been so fortunate and blessed; knowing that he will be forever held in my heart in the most special way, having been a part of the best day in my life. It's a profoundly difficult thing, confronting this kind of loss. The empty space left by a loved one gone too soon. I only hope that those who feel that loss the most, take comfort in each other, and also in the fact that, Carter has gone to his ancestors in paradise, where you can be sure he is being well cared for. Rest easy little man, knowing that you will be remembered always. I send love, hope, and what courage I can to his parents, grandparents, and all those who gave so much of themselves to make his time with us jovial and warm. May he shelter in the creator's hands.
I love you all so very much. Love-Bryson

No one was better at taking care of you other then your mother and father they was the best pick for a sweet little boy like you. Rest well my sweet angel

Carter loved to spend time at his grandparents house and always loved to see his Po dog. Po is our boy husky, and the first day Carter came home from the NICU Po was jumping up and down so excited to see this new baby. He kept jumping up and down on the sliding door (which carters grandma hates), and finally he was let in to see Carter.

Every time we brought Carter over he would receive licks all over from his head to his toes from Po. I would tell Po give Carter kisses, and he’d run over to him to give him a lick. Po was always so happy to see that sweet little boy.
